Silk was introduced in Brazil in the first half of the 19th Century, during the reign of Dom Pedro I. In Itaguaí, a city in Rio de Janeiro State, the “Imperial Companhia Seropédica Fluminense” was installed. In 1904, German descendants founded their factory in the Bingen district, in Petrópolis. Werner was born encrusted within an environment where nature is very generous in its shapes and colors. Our strict quality standards have so far ensured that Werner continues to manufacture top quality fabrics for the greatest brands in the fashion world. With a unique know-how in silk processing and full command of the productive phases, 300 employees work with spinning, weaving, dyeing, printing and finishing.
